valerie’s unique approach to real estate
Every Realtor has their own way of working with clients. I pride myself on being a realtor who works with clients that want to focus on their jobs and families while I take on the stress of their move.
As a full time working parent and spouse, I know how little time is left at the end of the day to worry about moving; and let’s face it, moving can be stressful!
I will work tirelessly to manage your move from beginning to end to ensure you the most stress free process possible.
Originally from the Quinte region, I spent my high school years in Port Hope, Ontario boarding at Trinity College School. It was during those years, spending weekends with friends in Toronto at their family homes that I decided Toronto was where I wanted to be.
After completing my Bachelors degree at The University of Western Ontario, I purchased my first condominium on Bay Street and moved to downtown to pursue a Masters degree in Communications.
My first job was working for the Ontario Government’s Contingency Planning Branch, where I was responsible for interviewing potential employees who had criminal records to determine whether they posed a threat to the province. That job taught me excellent communication skills and provided me with keen insight into people’s behaviours and habits; two tools that I use daily when negotiating on behalf of my clients.
Though I enjoyed my time with the Government, I knew that it wasn’t my true calling. I would spend hours a day on the Realtor.ca website scrolling through new listings and falling in love with the different styles of homes across Toronto. After years of scrolling listings in my spare time, I decided to make the leap and do what I loved for a living.
